Event #7: €10,450 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Bonomo Doubles; Sheikh Sent Packing


Scott Seiver raised to 6,000 under the gun only to have Justin Bonomo three-bet all in for 59,500. [Removed:163] then moved all in over the top for 62,500, Seiver folded, and the cards were turned up.

Sheikh: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Bonomo: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

Seiver reacted as if he had the best hand, and then let out a chuckle when the flop fell {6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{5-Spades}. According to him, he had held {6-}{6-}. Unfortunately for him, he didn't make the call and it would be Bonomo who would win the pot as the {3-Spades} turn and {K-Hearts} river completed the board.

That left Sheikh with just 3,000 in chips, and two hands later the 2,000 he had left went in. Three other players created a side pot and then checked the {5-Spades}{J-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop. Seiver proceeded to bet 9,000 on the {5-Hearts} turn, both his opponents folded, and the cards were tabled:

Sheikh: {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds}
Seiver: {Q-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

The {4-Clubs} river was no help for Sheikh and he made a quick exit from the tournament floor.
